Today's Featured Article: Notification[edit]

This is to inform you that Geoffrey (archbishop of York), which you nominated at WP:FAC, will appear on the Wikipedia Main Page as Today's Featured Article on 12 December 2014. The proposed main page blurb is here; you may amend if necessary. Please check for dead links and other possible faults before the appearance date. Brianboulton (talk) 21:33, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 is just around the corner...[edit]

Hello everyone, and may we wish you all a happy holiday season. As you will probably already know, the 2015 WikiCup begins in the new year; there is still time to sign up. We have a few important announcements concerning the future of the WikiCup.

  • We would like to announce that Josh (J Milburn) and Ed (The ed17), who have been WikiCup judges since 2009 and 2010 respectively, are stepping down. This decision has been made for a number of reasons, but the main one is time. Both Josh and Ed have found that, over the previous year, they have been unable to devote the time necessary to the WikiCup, and it is not likely that they will be able to do this in the near future. Furthermore, new people at the helm can only help to invigorate the WikiCup and keep it dynamic. Josh and Ed will still be around, and will likely be participating in the Cup this following year as competitors, which is where both started out.
  • In a similar vein, we hope you will all join us in welcoming Jason (Sturmvogel 66) and Christine (Figureskatingfan), who are joining Brian (Miyagawa) to form the 2015 WikiCup judging team. Jason is a WikiCup veteran, having won in 2010 and finishing in fifth this year. Christine has participated in two WikiCups, reaching the semi-finals in both, and is responsible for the GA Cup, which she now co-runs.
  • The discussions/polls concerning the next competition's rules will be closed soon, and rules changes will be made clear on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring and talk pages. While it may be impossible to please everyone, the judges will make every effort to ensure that the new rules are both fair and in the best interests of the competition, which is, first and foremost, about improving Wikipedia.

If you have any questions or concerns, the judges can be reached on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, on their talk pages, or by email. We hope you will all join us in trying to make the 2015 WikiCup the most productive and enjoyable yet. You are receiving this message because you are listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. J Milburn (talk), The ed17 (talk), Miyagawa (talk), Sturmvogel 66 (talk) and Figureskatingfan (talk) 18:54, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Fae's question[edit]

How embarrassing to have missed that - Real life has been a bit busy but I was sure I was watching that page. I'm a supporter of LGBT issues although rarely involved in them. Dougweller (talk) 07:43, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Regarding your reversion of my edit to Geoffrey (archbishop of York)[edit]

Hello, Ealdgyth. I think you may have misinterpreted my intention in adding the {{circa}} template to the article in question. You are certainly correct that the template isn't necessary; however, the Manual of Style clearly states the abbreviation "c." should not be italicized: "To indicate approximately, the abbreviation c. (followed by a space and not italicized) is preferred over circa, ca., or approx." My reason for adding the template, then, was to remove the improper italicization. I also believe the template is preferable to a wikilink, as hovering over the term reveals for what the abbreviation stands, thereby saving the user a click. Thank you. —zziccardi (talk) 23:00, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

And i utterly detest the template because it's not intuitive that hovering over it WOULD give you something different. If you want to remove the italics ... that's one thing, but templates are just a pain in the behind for this sort of thing. Ealdgyth - Talk 23:02, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
As an aside - the italics indicate a loan-word/foreign word that might not be familiar to the reader - so ... we remove the italics because the reader is supposed to be familiar with the word because it's become so common in normal English usage - but then insist on inserting a silly template that puts a weird underscore under the word (which we do for no other word as far as I'm aware) because we need to tell the reader what the word means? Which is it? Are they familiar with the word so it doesn't need italics or is it so arcane that we have to use a template to explain it to them?? Something doesn't make sense there... Ealdgyth - Talk 23:05, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Hello, again. Yes, I believe the italics should be removed, but if you'd rather keep the link, that's fine by me. As for the template, I disagree that hovering over the term is unintuitive. The template simply implements the <abbr> element, which has been a standard component of HTML for some time now. And as for the italics, yes, I'd agree with you that they should be used whenever a foreign word or term is introduced. I'd say circa is an exception to that practice, though, as it's now a commonly used English word. —zziccardi (talk) 23:20, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
So since it's a commonly used term - we can just link to the article on it rather than use a template. (grins). Feel free to remove the italics - I was taught (and still see it used often) so I don't feel like its removal is needed, but I never edit war over the removal of the italics - I do object to the insertion of that damned template. Ealdgyth - Talk 23:23, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Again, I have no problem with the link; it's only compliance with the MOS that I find obligatory. Cheers. —zziccardi (talk) 23:28, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

The Bastard[edit]

Thank you for Geoffrey (archbishop of York), "not noted for his saintly restraint nor his even temper. ... the sheer number of disputes made the chronology much more tortured than usual", - precious again --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:01, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations on yet another fine article. Dudley Miles (talk) 17:40, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
